    He's coming off two pretty solid seasons in Portland. He's a much different player now than he was when he was here.

    I'll rather have Shabazz over Ulis. But I really think their going to give Briscoe a hard look this summer. He's a bit intriguing, especially with the way he shot the ball last season overseas. He definitely has a shot to make the team as our 3rd string PG.

    That Kemba trade would be a bad move, especially if we take on Batum. It 'd be like the Ibaka deal all over again. I think the best thing for us to do is to continue to build from the draft, and wait for the right deals to present itself. There no need to rush the process.

    Pistons and Bucks work out a sign and trade for Jennings.
  10. I looking forward to see how the PG experiment goes for Vic. I think Lamb will see a lot of time at PG, too. I think the staff envision him in a Gary Neal role this season, and I believe he's capable of handling that role. He just needs to gain a little more confidence.

    Yea, I wouldn't mind Beaubois or Beverly if they were to go the cheaper route either. Brian Roberts, who looks like the odd man out in New Orleans, is another guy I like if they go that route.

    The Pistons are reportedly going to be players in free agency. They've been link to just about every top free agent on the market, which lead me to believe their goal is to make the playoff. They definitely don't seem to be in tank mode. I think Dumars knows he's on a short leash, and the only way to keep his job is to win now. I mean why else are they targeting Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala and J.R. Smith?

    Villanueva has an expiring contract though. Plus, you're not gonna get much value in return for Davis - because he's coming off an injury.

    Here's my off-season mock for the Magic: Buyout Al Harrington Hedo Turkoglu Trades Orlando trades Arron Afflalo and Andrew Nicholson to Los Angeles Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler. It's a win-win for both teams. Orlando gets it's PG of the future, and LA gets Chris Paul a legit running mate in the backcourt. Orlando trades Glen Davis and E'Twaun Moore to Detroit for Charlie Villanueva and a 2014 second round pick. The Pistons are in win now mode, so they could use someone like Davis off the bench. Plus, Dumar has had interest in Davis in the past and they could really use him now that it looks like Jason Maxiell will be moving on. Orlando trades Caron Butler to Memphis for a 2015 second round pick and Rudy Gay's TPE. Memphis could use some perimeter scoring and another defender on the perimeter. Butler could fulfill both roles for them. Orlando trades Josh McRoberts’ TPE and future second round pick to Houston for Thomas Robinson. Houston clears some cap space to make run for D12, and we add another young talent to the stable. Free Agency Austin Daye, SF Has show some promise in the limited amount of action he has gotten so far in his career. I feel he could be a solid backup for us on the wing. He also has shown to be a very solid 3pt shooter, which is an area we lack at this moment. Has ties to Scott Perry, too. Cole Aldrich, C Young, developmental big that has shown some promise toward the end of last season with the Kings. Would be consider as the 5th big. Has ties to Hennigan. Depth Chart C: Vucevic/O'Quinn/Aldrich PF: Harris/Robinson/Osby/Villanueva SF: Harkless/Daye SG: Oladipo/Lamb PG: Bledsoe/Nelson/Dellavedova
